Question by:

Asked On: 01/29/2018

Is this violin matte/satin finished like the pictures or glossy like the 360 view?

SHAR Answer:

When photographing our instruments, we configure the lighting to reduce glare, which can make some instruments look more matted than they really are. However, this instrument is more of a semi-gloss, which is accentuated by the bright whiteness of the light box used for the 360-degree photos. So, to answer your question, the current stock is somewhere in-between how these images appear.
